Step 3: Get Involved
The sheer number of organizations in need of donations can be overwhelming, often paralyzing your good intentions. But if you care about good food, it’s important to find ways to give back and support those who are striving to change their communities. It might mean your patronage at a local cafe that supports youth in culinary programs, joining a CSA, sending a letter to your members of congress about agricultural policy, or making a monthly donation that feeds a family thousands of miles away. However you choose to get involved, this section will help you clarify your interests.
